I arrived at my mother's house yesterday, and found a surprise--my package from my Book Blogger Holiday Swap Secret Santa! It was a surprise because I had forgotten I had used her address...and I had left home feeling sad that I hadn't gotten it. But there it was! Yay!
My Santa, Gaskella, picked out two books that made me very happy--The Dead Gentleman, by Matthew Cody (time travel parallel New York, by the author of Icefall), and The Nightwood, by Robin Muller (a beautiful picture book retelling of Tamlynne [sic]).
Thank you very much indeed, Gaskella!!! And thank you to all who worked behind the scenes, organizing the book blogger holiday swap ! It was such fun sending off my own present, and receiving books I wanted in turn!
